I didn't mean that as a negative to earlier performances of Dark Star and the Other One of which there were many great examples,to my ear those pieces plus PITB had matured in the 72'-74' era and became the perfect representation of GD music.

My bad; misunderstood...and, though it is just past the era I spend my time in, I can certainly appreciate PITB as THE Dead song...good choice. And, BTW, this means I saw the versions you like (74-82). On a side note, my fav memory of the Dead Cover Band I worked with (roadie only!) in the 70s is of coming to a gig they were playing, after we'd set up, and I had to leave to get a piece of non-essential equipment and I came back in just as they opened with this, which they did fairly well...blew the place wide open and everyone there was dancin, just absolutely lovin it...made it more personal. Then, one of my sons used the a verse from it for his HS graduation "quote" the song has a lot of meaning for me.
